Peter J Foley Little League Stadium in Naugatuck is one of six finalists for Major League Baseball’s “Little Field, Big Experience” contest.
Founded in 1949, Peter J. Foley Stadium is the oldest little league stadium in New England.
Michael Worobel, one of the directors of the stadium, submitted an essay on what the field means to the community and how the major they would benefit from the grand prize.
“Having the Big League Experience at Peter J Foley would not only be a great way to show everyone the amazing little league history that is still going strong in Naugatuck, but also a way to give back to a field that has given us so much more than just a place to play ball,” Worobel wrote in the essay.
The winner of the contest, which is sponsored by Scotts Lawn Care company, receives a complete field makeover, appearances by MLB talents and/or mascots, ballpark food and music and entertainment at the stadium.
Voting is open at littlefieldbigexperience.com or mlb.com/scotts until July 4th at midnight.
